Response from
Department of Internal Affairs

Different agency responsible

Death statistics related to the NZ Deaths register, administrated by the Department of Internal Affairs are publicly accessible via Statistics NZ. This part of your request is therefore refused under section 18(d) of the Act. You can find death statistics on Statistics NZ website at: (select ‘population’, and then ‘Death rates DMM’ and/or ‘Death rates – VSD’. You may also be interested in ‘life expectancy – DLE’.). Additionally, recent datasets related to births and deaths are found at Death statistics that include cause of death are held by Te Whatu Ora - Health NZ. The Department is therefore transferring your request to Te Whatu Ora in accordance with section 14(b)(i) and (ii) of the Act, as the information is believed to be held by Te Whatu Ora and more closely connected with the functions of Te Whatu Ora. You can expect to hear from Te Whatu Ora shortly. You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision to transfer. Information about how to make a complaint is available at or Freephone 0800 802 602.
